The Polygon C3.0 road bike is equipped with everything you need to pedal with speed and efficiency. With traditional racing frames requiring a more aggressive aero riding position, the Helios C3.0 offers the alternative endurance riding position, which is only slightly more upright, but infinitely more comfortable. Added to that is the compact crankset, which has lower gearing through the use of smaller chain rings, this lowers the overall gear ratio on the bike making it "easier" to ride up hills, spinning the cranks more often as you go.
Overall it is finished with very credible Shimano Sora drivetrain and Shimano's R501 clincher wheels. The tapered carbon fork addes plenty of "get up and go" keeping the front end stiff and responsive. The Polygon C3.0 is an fantastic endurance machine - its responsive yet comfortable, and rides every bit as good as it looks.

Free Pro Build valued at $99
All of our bicycles come with a Free Pro Build valued at $99. This means that your bicycle will be pre built by our professional mechanics here in our Australian warehouse. For your convenience, safety and comfort all our bikes are fully assembled and test ridden prior to delivery. The bike is then packaged back into a box for secure shipment.
When your bike arrives, all you have to attach is the front wheel, the handlebar and pedals, everything else has been done – the headset has been adjusted, wheels trued, pedals and seat post greased, brakes and gears calibrated, even the tyres have been pumped up to the correct pressure.
Most companies simply sell you the bike as it comes from the factory, which will require significant know-how to get your bike on the road. Currently we are the only Australian company providing this service, and have the 14 day test ride to back it up.
All tools are provided with the bike.
If you are unsure of how to assemble this bike after viewing the instruction videos above, we recommend you ask for help from someone with knowledge of how to use basic hand tools.
Please note, that all bicycles whether purchased online or instore, are mechanical devices and need to be serviced regularly to ensure proper functioning.
